Ben Stokes said the Test team of the decade cap he was given by the ICC “just doesn’t seem right” because it looks too similar to the Australian Test cap.

Stokes on Wednesday took to social media to thank ICC and say that he is proud to get the caps for both the teams. However, Stokes also added a little quip about the Test Team of the Decade cap being a bit too similar to the ‘Baggy Green’ worn by England’s biggest rivals, Australia.

“Very proud of both these cap’s,one of them just doesn’t seem right,it’s a bit BAGGY and GREEN thanks @icc,” he wrote on Instagram, along with pictures of him sporting both the caps.
